Pickren, Brantley Roddenberry, Mrs. Dean, Neal Joyner, Pearl Allen and Helen Pickren. Proceeds will go to the Methodist Church Building Fund.

FOLKSTON METHODIST CHURCH. The Methodists have started work on their new building. Their old "lean-to" steeple, that has been an eye-sore to all the people in town, has been pulled down. The sides of the old building have been removed and everything is ready for the new work to begin. The new building is to be stucco with a metal roof. There will be six Sunday School rooms and the building is to be completed by the first of June. The Methodists are using the school building for their Sunday School and the Baptist Church for their church services.

LITTLE MILDRED RODGERS PAINFULLY BURNED. Mildred, the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Rodgers, was painfully burned Monday by overturning a pot of boiling coffee. Her leg above the knee and her foot was so badly scalded that the skin came off when her clothing was removed. She is getting along as well as could be expected and soon hopes to take her place in the first grade, at which she is one of the brightest pupils.
